TAC Technique Blog Hop--Retiform

Say what?  2007????? 
Stop rubbing your eyes--it's okay.  You are not dreaming. 
I made fourteen of these pages (October 2007) for a Red Hot calendar swap--using the Retiform (or grid) technique!  It's not the "traditional" retiform technique but you'll see that it really doesn't matter how you do it.  It all comes out looking pretty kewl. 
For all these retiform technique samples, I went into the "yuki vault" (aren't you impressed that I even FOUND my vault?); all stamps are retired TAC stamps.

 I really like this one, don't you?

 On this card, I used a piece of cardstock that had a lot of texture.

 More shoes--love those shoes!

This card is not one of my favorites but it is interesting and I love the sentiment!  It's so true, don't you think?
So give the Retiform Technique a try why don't you!  It's a fast and easy way to create a  background that will enhance just about any stamp you own!!!
As always. . .
